1993 Jeep XJ overheat

My '93 XJ has recently overheated, and I'm pretty sure that the head gasket blew. I came to this conclusion based on a very small amount of residual coolant in the motor oil as well as white smoke/steam coming from the exhaust. I'm planning on replacing the head gasket.
I was wondering what else I should be looking for as far as possible damage is concerned, as well as what else I need to be replacing along the lines of gaskets and seals go, regardless. Thanks guys!

Yep head gasket blew, just make sure all your radiator hoses are still good. Each time the vehicle overheats it takes a beating on all coolant components.
